May Is National Mobility Awareness Month
May 2014 marks the 3rd annual celebration of National Mobility Awareness Month, when we encourage people with disabilities to embody the spirit of Life Moving Forward by raising awareness of the mobility solutions available in your community. Whether you are living with a disability or have dedicated your time to helping someone who is, we want to hear what makes them a Local Hero.
can be Defined as People who
Volunteer, Educate, Advocate,
Achieve, and Persevere.
Stories will be shared and voted on. Voting is open to the public and at least four customized wheelchair accessible vehicles will be awarded to the Local Hero Winners.
Over 18 million people in North America are living with restrictive mobility issues. This is your chance to change the lives of just a few of those triumphing in the face of adversity.
